    If I am staying at a Disney resort hotel, can I begin my making/planning reservation 180 from when I check in?

    Hi Jamie,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you're having a blast planning for your upcoming vacation to the most magical place on earth!

    Yes, you are exactly correct. All advanced dining reservations are able to be booked 180 days ahead of time, but when you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you have the added benefit of being able to make reservations for the entire length of your stay, up to 10 days, at that 180-day point. This great perk allows you to make dining selections more than 180 days ahead of time, offering you the greatest selection of times and restaurants so that you can find what works best for you!

    From memorable and fun Character dining opportunities to entertaining dinner shows to cuisines to please every palate, you're sure to find lots of amazing choices to choose from! Did you know that you can find menus online for each restaurant? Simply click the name of the restaurant and choose "View Menu." I love looking through my different options and dreaming about the mouth-watering yumminess long before I arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip, Jamie. I hope you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
